    Default Elizabeth Gilbert, author of "Eat, pray, love"

    Any idea on her type?
    ENFP probably?

    Honestly, I've never heard of her...
    "Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    That was one of the books that my book club read. It was an interesting story of traveling to countries that all had names that began with an "I." Unfortunately, I thought that the book was a little too self-indulgent. I would have liked to have read a lot more about the cultures of these countries and how she experienced them. She got to go to all of these exotic and romantic places and she still was fixated on her own personal melodrama???
    But the book gave me an idea. I'd like to write a book in which I too visit places that begin with the letter "I."
    For my adventure, I chose Iceland, Ireland, and Isle of Man.
    Now, to figure out the funding for this adventure!!!
    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    Woman had nervous break down before going! what do you expect? I mean.. I agree the book (and Gilbert) are both self-indulgent but I dont view it neccessary as bad thing, that's just her. I read half of the book 2 yrs ago and hated it bc I couldnt relate to her because she sounded too old to me, but now I loved it. I matured a bit.

    and I guess NFs (and all women) would dig that book more than NTs.

    The clip makes her seem kind of annoying and the book doesn't sound like my cup of tea, but I'm more of a fiction reader anyway.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    It probably beats Iran, Iraq, and Illinois.

    I understand about that. But I guess that I can't relate, being a non-NF. But still, what an opportunity, to travel like that! She's so far away from the source of her emotional pain. It was no longer part of her experiences! She could forget about it and be in the moment that she was living in... in Italy, India, and Indonesia. I wanted to read more about her discovery of her inner strength as she explored parts of the world that she had never before seen.
